 CBS, Warner to form new network, close UPN, WB - Boston.com
The new CW network will debut in September 2006 as a 50-50 joint venture of UPN parent company CBS Corp. and Time Warner Inc., which controls the WB, shrinking the field of major U.S. commercial TV networks from six to five.
Executives said CW would be run more cost-efficiently than UPN (which stands for United Paramount Network) or WB (for Warner Bros.) and would probably turn a profit at its launch, something neither predecessor network has managed to achieve.
The merger comes as the most obvious sign yet that the increasingly fragmented U.S. television market is incapable of supporting as many as six commercial networks.
